The Vargo flask is worrisome if he carries spirits in it. Drinking and carrying generally don’t go together well. Certainly beyond a single drink and even that isn’t recommended. Carrying a whole flask? That seems like a problem just waiting to happen. To say nothing of the illegal transportation issues while driving.
Marty does send his own notes on this submission:
No, I don’t have a good reason for carrying 2 Microtechs other than that I can but they are both good at different tasks. I barely smoke nowadays but the Zippo is a lucky charm more than anything. The Tac-Light is cheap and built like a tank. I’ve carried a decent handful of guns of different sizes from an LCP to a full size 1911 and the USP is just the right fit for me. It’s accurate, light enough and like all HKs very well made. I added a bit of color to the slide because I was bored one night.
So, do you drink while packing? Thoughts on that? Am I all wet pooh-poohing it?
